GA State Convention: Section N of the Call For 2012 Georgia conventionsSubmitted by trifid on Sat, 05/19/2012 - 23:44
I was at the state convention earlier, and Chairman Evans said that Sue Everhart, chairman of the state GOP, and the state committeeman and committeewoman, by "virtue" (a quote from Mr. Evans) of their respective offices/elected positions, were automatically delegates to the National Convention.
Read section N of the 2012 Georgia Republican call for conventions here: http://ga4ronpaul.com/Documents/2012%20Georgia%20GOP%20Conve...
SECTION N. NO AUTOMATIC DELEGATES
There shall be no Delegates or Alternates who serve automatically by virtue of Party
position or elective office.
Does this strike anyone else as a blatant violation of the rules? I'm hoping the livestream was saved, because I want to go back and watch it to get Mr. Evans' exact wording, but he definitely used the word "virtue," in reference to the fact that those three positions are automatically delegates to the National Convention.
Assuming it is a violation of the rules, what would the consequences be? Would be nice to get Georgia's entire delegation disqualified, and deprive all those friends & family members of their Florida vacation.
Anyone else have an opinion on this?
